3. Peaches in the Attic: A Rather Disturbing Tale by B. A. Spicer (2012)
Length: 13 pages
Genre: Short Story
Started/Finished: 27 January 2015
Where did it come from? From Amazon
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 24 January 2015
Why do I have it? This ebook was a free download from Amazon in January of 2015, although I certainly want to read more short stories. I have also read and enjoyed  Angels: A Metaphysical Horror Story by the same author in the past.

Valerie absolutely loves her Grandma's stories. From funny to scary and every genre in between, to little Valerie's mind Grandma is the best storyteller ever. She can transport the little girl to anywhere her imagination desires, simply by telling one of her wonderful stories. And the best part of all is that the star of every story is Valerie herself.  

However, sometimes the line between reality and fantasy can become very blurry. So, when something momentous happens to them, will Valerie be able to tell her story. And, most importantly, will anyone believe her? 

I really enjoyed this story very much and I give it an A! I must say that Valerie reminded me so much of myself. When I was little my Grandpa was the one who used to tell me stories; although in my opinion, his stories were never quite as scary as one of Valerie's Grandma's stories. And just like Valerie, I was always the star of my Grandpa's stories.

The stories that my Grandpa told me usually involved my name (of course), and a giant bag of sweets - any sort of candy that might have been my favorite at the time - for myself, and to share with anyone else I might meet during the course of the story.

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
